Question about 2006 Toyota Sequoia

1 Answer

06 sequoia: Horns unexpectantly start blowing for no reason, like it's possessed. Horns eventually burn out. Clock spring in the steering column has been replaced as it was thought to be the cause. Anyone have any other idea's.

    The clock spring was worn from all the turning that gets done, but that's not the issue a horn, (not the alarm) would turn on and not shut off. It appears.... that the theft deterrent module has a wire that is connected to the horn relay. From what I can tell, if the module is bad (intermittent as it is)it can/will sent current out to the horn relay, and close the contacts, thus causing the horn to sound without interruption.

98 Chevy 1500 recently started flashing the high beams when the horn is pressed instead of sounding the horns. Fuse is good, and relay clicks when horn pressed. When relay is removed nothing happens.


Been to long since I worked on a 98. Best guess is the turn signal switch. It could be the clock spring at the steering wheel. Both are a steering column issue.

Horn not working


what country, ??????? horns vary by country some have 2 horns.
it can only be 4 things. on all cars. 06 Toyota Hilux?
to find it only takes a voltmeter, any DMM set to volts.
a horn, (or is ground at base rusty)
the wires. (that includes connections )
the horn relay if fitted (FSM read horn page,)
and lastly the horn ring in the steering column.
any or all, only a voltmeter can find all problems all the time.
the clock spring is AIR bags, you defeat them when working
on the steering wheel in any way shape or form or risk neck snapping.
RTM read the FSM, manual. its all there.
so is it at alldata.com

usa
the Hilux name was retired in 1976 in favor of Truck, Pickup Truck, or Compact Truck.
read the confusion here, for GEN 7 pickups.

How to change the horn on a 2011 ford fiesta


How do you know it's the horn ? Do you have a volt meter ? Check for voltage at the horns . Before replacing parts , test . Go to youtube an watch a few basic electrical trouble shooting videos . Your vehicle has two horns an the possibility of both going out is 0 . When you press the horn switch it is a signal to the BCM - body control module , then the BCM turns on the horns . Do you have an airbag light lit on the instrument cluster ? The clock spring in the steering column could be open .What fuse did you check . F32 in the battery junction box - fuse box under the hood in engine compartment . How cars clock spring works

My horn blows when i make left turns. what is going on


The horn pad or the clock spring in the steering column is shorting to ground. The clock spring is the device that allows contacts in the steering wheel to move in circles.

2000 airbag code flashing 47 had very minor accident in rear


probably its just coincidence but the accident dont have much to do with the error code .. This is a common problem ,, basically there is a device called a clock spring in the steering wheel, this device is like a bearing with a coil that turns with the steering yet allows the air bag in the steering to be powered. Now this has brushes and wires and a bearing fitted in such a manner the steering can turn freely without breaking contact. Well eventually the wires break and it needs replacing. This involves removing the steering and replacing the spring. I strongly suggest you get a professional to do this as there is no room for error reasons being
  1. the clock spring needs to be set propperly 1 1/2 turns left and 1 1/2 turns right if not your steering will not function as it should and you wont be able to make turns left or right and over turn on the other end (big problem) as it can lead to accidents.
  2. you can discharge the air bags and that's bad as its expensive to replace, not mention your air bags use gun powder to discharge ,, this can cause critical injuries m burns etc..
  3. if the wiring is wrong , you can blow the ecu as the ecu directly controls the air bags on a 12 volt relay.. Well i guess you get the point.
simply put your's needs replacing..
